Renewable energy in schools

Schools Run on Sun Project from Brent Friends of the Earth

Run on Sun is a Friends of the Earth (FoE) initiative to help schools to install solar panels for
electricity.

Schools are being encouraged to save money on their energy bills while supplying renewable energy.

Schools are particularly suitable for Photo Voltaic (PV) panels, having large roof areas for economy of scale and daytime demand. The panels are also a useful educational resource.

For full details of the project, please read the document sent to Brent school governors representing all Brent schools. Read the Run on Sun school document 

We want to make sure we provide the best advice to our schools so it’s important you tell us if you are intending to install Solar PV through the Friends of the Earth – Run on Sun Scheme.
